PROFILE: Casino Air Products solutions help terminals operate better, last longer
Las Vegas, Nev.-based Casino Air Products has carved a niche in the gaming industry by providing air filters for a wide variety of electronic slot machines and video lottery terminals.
The company’s primary products are 3M High Air Flow Electrostatic Filters, which have been specially designed to help reduce the amount of certain airborne contaminants such as smoke, dust, dirt, debris and carpet fibers from entering air intakes on devices such as slot machines, vending machines, arcade games, ATMs, kiosks, and computers. According to company technical sheets, a high permanent electrostatic charge on the 3M filter media is the key to the filter performance. The innovative filter design provides the basis for excellent particle capture, or efficiency, while maintaining high airflow. This high charge also helps prevent shedding of collected dirt during use and filter change-out. A lower pressure drop filter may allow the design of an airflow system with a higher flow rate or a reduced blower capacity, the latter resulting in quieter operation.
The 3M High Air Flow Electrostatic Filter System can be installed over most electronic enclosures’ ventilation inlets and filter the air to provide cleaner air to the slot machine. The filter is designed to last up to three months and may have the ability to reduce preventative maintenance (PM) cycles on each slot machine, decrease downtime and keep the glass looking cleaner, and in turn, saving the company time and money.

At G2E, Zytronic will use a 55-inch touchtable to demonstrate ObjectViz—an object-recognition solution developed in partnership with Tangible Display. ObjectViz is based on the attachment of physical markers (Phymarks) to the objects, and does not require modification of the touchtable hardware. Non-conductive objects such as a pen or a bag are ignored. The controller is programmed to recognize only specific Phymarks attached to an object, and respond accordingly. Zytronic sensors are well suited for touch tables, as they combine extreme resistance to severe impact, scratches and liquid spillages, with immunity to accidental touch by a sleeve or glass, incorporating advanced palm-rejection functionality that only reacts to a finger or conductive stylus.

Surface Capacitive touchscreens
The Surface Capacitive touchscreen from Fantalooks is coated with materials that are highly charged, so it has to be touched by fingernail only for activation, which is different from resistive touch screen which can be activated by finger, a gloved hand, stylus pen or any other objects. Since the capacitive is made of glass with 9H hardness, which makes it extremely durable and scratch resistant, it is not affected by outside elements, has high clarity and is easy to clean.
With these characteristics, Fantalook’s capacitive touch screen is recommended for use in outdoor kiosks, game machines, POS terminals, casino machines and various kinds of industrial devices. Visit www.fantalooks.com for more info.
